This workshop will highlight the criticality of considering the long term, as crises can bring both opportunity and change. Research shows that post-recession champions continued to invest in their future through a downturn. A short term only focus left organizations uncompetitive when the new normal arrived. We will discuss how making strategic investments in innovation and marketing, as well as reducing costs selectively can aid your organization through a downturn.
We will cover:
• Types of responses to slowdown
• What is everyone doing? (poll & discussion)
• What’s too defensive and what’s too aggressive?
• Actions to consider now
